Tanzania - Region & District Boundary

The datasets are curated from the Tanzania National Bureau of Statistics (NBS) 2012 Population and Housing Census (PHC) of Tanzania which was preceded by the preparatory geographic work, which involved field visiting of all regions, districts, wards/shehia, villages/mitaa, localities and sub-villages in the country, primarily to create and delineate Enumeration Area boundaries (EAs) so as to produce maps required for census operations. The most important principle followed in delineating an EA was that under no circumstance should an EA overlap the existing administrative boundaries of...

Zambia - Electricity Transmission Network

Combination of the following data sources:
1) data collected and prepared for a project of the World Bank Group in April 2014
2) The Africa Infrastructure Country Diagnostic (AICD) study
3) OSM data © OpenStreetMap contributors

This data is partially based on a digitized PDF map, and so is intended as a schematic of rough locations of the power network. It is not suitable for applications requiring high accuracy.

Yemen - Electricity Transmission Network

Main nodes and major lines of the electricity transmission network of Yemen.

The properties for nodes are "name" and "node type" (city, town, plant, dam...). The properties for lines are the "transmission power" in kV (e.g. 400), the "type of line" (single, double...), the linked nodes (identified by the nodes names) and, for international interconnections, the "interconnection" property gathers the two linked countries identified by name. The format is GeoJSON, nodes are displayed as points and lines as lines.

Data comes from the Arab Union of Electricity.
